In all matters it’s a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted.

Bertrand Russell

What’s new at the CCRC?

Missed the launch of RADICAL? Listen to the first episode HERE so you’re ready to join us for episode two coming in November!

In August, the CCRC hosted its first information session about the Social Innovation Hub (SIH) we are building as one of the three pillars for the organization. It is a vital step in our reset – something that began at the Rural Talks to Rural conference in November of 2020. SIH is a connector for relationships, networks and capacity development for rural changemakers through learning, sharing and co-creating.

These actions support rural well-being and foster vibrant rural communities and inspire radical change. At its core the Hub is a place for collaboration, creativity, action and transformation. A first public presentation of the proposal took place virtually and is available online now! Check it out.

Upcoming opportunities from our community
